|A Vintermössa m/1943 with unfolded visor and folded earflaps|
|Place of origin:||Sweden|
|Evolved from:||Pälsmössa m/1909|
|Used by:||Swedish Army|
The Vintermössa m/1943 is made of sheep wool. It has foldable earflaps to protect the ears from cold and also a foldable visor, its design seems to have been inspired by the Finnish Karvalakki m/22 cap. Presumably, it was introduced in 1943. The hat was utilised by the Swedish Army, although, since Sweden did not participate in any direct armed conflict throughout the 20th century, it is probable that the Vintermössa m/1943 was not used in actual warfare.
In popular cultureEdit
- The Vintermössa m/1943 with World War II era Soviet badge is featured in the video game Call of Duty: Black Ops. Strangely, it is worn by the Soviet soldiers and by the character Dimitri Petrenko.
